ENJOINING ORDER ON BCCSL
(99 Apr 07)
The District Judge of Kolomba, Mr. A.W. Salam issued an enjoining order on Wednesday the seventh restraining the newly elected members of the executive committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in Sri Lanka (BCCSL) from holding office and functioning in the relevant capacities until the adjudication of the case. This is in sequel to an application filed by Mr. Clifford Ratwatte challenging the recent election.
The order of the District Court stated that having perused through the plaint, proxy and the relevant documents annexed, it does not seem to Court that the said election was valid in law or reasonable.
Meanwhile, Mr. Dhammika Ranatunga, the chief executive of the BCCSL, at a press conference has allayed fears that the Order would crippled the activities of the Board in connection with the world cup.
